Many families in the United States were living comfortably until the stock market crashed in 1929, leading the country into the worst economic depression of its history, The Great Depression.

This clip can be used to teach United States history, more specifically the Stock Market Crash of 1929 and The Great Depression. The narrator in the clip explains the impact of the stock market crash on the United States economy: millions of individuals lost their hard-earned savings, and unemployment rose to 25%. As a result, millions of families had to change the way they lived in order to survive. This new way of life was noticeably less comfortable than their old way of life, as depicted in the clip.
